.DISCUSSION...

High pressure will shift east today as a warm front approaches
from the west. Clouds will overspread the area today and look for
south to southeast winds to increase and become quite strong in
the Red Rive valley. Expect smoke dispersal to improve to the good
category as the day progresses with winds increasing due to
inversion break. There is a small chance for a little light snow
and rain over mainly west central Minnesota this afternoon as
moisture moves east ahead of the warm front. For now, look for
minimum humidities to decrease to around 30 percent around mid
afternoon.

Tonight will see the gusty south to southeast winds continue.

Otherwise, an upper level system to our south will spread
moisture and areas of light rain over the area during the day
Thursday and Thursday evening.
